New 'The Muppets' Trailer Previews ABC's 'Sort of An Adult Muppet Show'

The new "The Muppets" series is official for ABC's fall schedule, landing at 8 p.m. on Tuesdays. And with that news comes the first trailer for the show, in which Kermit himself calls describes the project as "sort of an adult 'Muppet Show'" -- complete with Kermit complaining about traffic, Fozzie meeting his (human) girlfriend's parents, drama with Miss Piggy, jokes about overused faux-documentary tropes and a gag implying Dr. Teeth and The Electric Mayhem have indeed been enjoying mind-altering substances all these years.

Here's ABC's official description of the series:


The Muppets return to primetime with a contemporary, documentary-style show. For the first time ever, a series will explore the Muppets' personal lives and relationships, both at home and at work, as well as romances, breakups, achievements, disappointments, wants and desires. This is a more adult Muppet show, for "kids" of all ages.

Bill Prady ("The Big Bang Theory") and Bob Kushell ("Anger Management") are co-writers and executive producers. Randall Einhorn ("Wilfred"), Bill Barretta, Debbie McClellan and Kyle Laughlin are also executive producers. "The Muppets" is produced by ABC Studios and The Muppets Studio.
